GACS recently held its annual Legislative Reception & Day on the Hill on January 26, 2016.
GACS hosted nearly 15 retailer and supplier members at the Capitol the morning before the legislative reception. Each member introduced themselves to their elected officials and invited them to the reception. After lunch, we were able to sit in on the House Regulated Industries Committee Meeting, which provided insight into where events take place on the Capitol Grounds and how our lobbyist spends her days on the hill.
We encourage members to join us next year!
